MADISON, Wis. (AP) - The group that has led protests against Madison police for killing an unarmed biracial man plans to demonstrate on Wednesday, a day after a prosecutor announces whether he’s going to file criminal charges in the incident.

Madison Police Officer Matt Kenny, who is white, shot 19-year-old Tony Robinson in an apartment house in March. Police said Robinson attacked Kenny. Dane County District Attorney Ismael Ozanne plans to announce Tuesday whether he’ll charge Kenny.

The Young, Gifted and Black Coalition has been leading protests against the shooting. The group announced Monday that they’ll rally Wednesday morning in front of the apartment house. They want people to give up whatever they’re doing that day and join them in what they’re calling “Black-Out Wednesday.”
